R3dfox, modern Firefox for Windows 7!

Unread post by K4sum1 »

R3dacted Fox or r3dfox is modern Firefox but Windows 7 compatible. It's currently on version 122 as of posting. There are still some issues like the window border always being the Windows 10 one, but it works.

https://github.com/Eclipse-Community/r3dfox

To download it, go to the releases tab and download the executable from the latest release.

If you run into any bugs or issues, please report it on GitHub under the issues tab. I am more likely to get to it and remember to fix it if it's there. If you don't have a GitHub account, here is fine too though.

Going to be a bit busy with other projects, so r3dfox 123 might be delayed a bit.
